Testimonials

"Buying from Blue Turtles is always a pleasure - opening all those drawers at the Gift Fair to see the hidden treasures inside – because you know you’ll only see the good stuff. Each stone is chosen aesthetically, set with heavy silver and finished beautifully... you don’t get bumpy edges, join marks that haven’t been polished out, left over tarnished sections or stones hanging out the back of a setting. The attention to detail is obvious from the moment you look at any piece. It’s well priced, especially for the quality of the stones and the amount of silver used. You get prompt and efficient service, always with a smile!"

Do you remember when you had no doubt at all, that fairies were real? Why is it so natural for us as children to believe in magic and fairies, yet when we grow into adults they become nothing but fantasy and make-believe (for most of us, anyway)? If, as adults, we truly believe that fairies are nonsense, then why do we tolerate our children’s interest in them? Shouldn’t we be discouraging them, rather than building them up for the great disappointment to come? …Aren’t we strange? In J. M. Barrie’s story Peter Pan, a ...
